Lost some of its lusture

We have eaten here before and loved it. The current kitchen crew is not as talented as it has been in the past. Try Justamere Cafe instead.

was here for lunch a little while ago and it was good but honestly nothing that special. Place was almost empty and the service was still slow and unattentive. Not sure what our server was doing the whole time. However I would go back to give it another try.

This restaurant is a gem, reservations are recommended but it is elegant dining at its finest with great servers, great chef, awesome food choices and great place to have a wonderful sit down dining experience enjoy a relaxing meal with attentive but non intrusive servers. Great east coast food choices and reasonable prices. Recommend trying this place.

I went here for my birthday lunch one week ago and as usual it was excellent. The Mexican Sope was delicious! It is the second time I have ordered it.

Recently we booked a dinner for 34 people following the much acclaimed X Ring Ceremony for St FX University. We were quite fortunate to be able to book our dinner in the Hawthorne Room at Gabrieaus's the evening of the ceremony and it was outstanding! The venue was intimate and lovely, the service was excellent and the food absolutely delicious!... More
